In his third solo show at Kuttner Siebert in Berlin / Germany, Terry Haggerty shows new works that represent a logical evolution of his painting. Terry Haggerty was born in London in 1970. He lives and works in Berlin and New York.
“Terry Haggerty’s works are marked by their extraordinary perfection, whereby several layers of varnish seal the surface of the image, thus keeping the visitor at a distance. But he does not succeed in refusing the visual impact. And it is even more heightened in his new works by way of the deformation of the support, through the sculptural accentuation of the painted sculptures. Distortions of the right angle such as buckling, stretching, or constriction underscore the forces immanent to the image in perception. Finally, what is painted condenses more tightly to an object, the support becomes the body of the image so that it is no longer possible to decide whether what is painted follows the support or if the body follows the painterly structure.” (excerpt from the exhibition text)
Terry Haggerty: Angle of Response / Kuttner Siebert Gallery, Berlin. The exhibition runs until June 5, 2010.
